    I worked at Triton College part-time

    Pros

    I loved working with students.

    Cons

    Toxic environment in the Department. Absolutely no communication in the department unless they wanted to blame you for something then everyone got CC'd on the email

    Advice to Management

    There are many reasons why you have a teacher shortage...look within

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, some highly educated, smart, peers.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment, very high turnover at the administration level. Average admin stay is under two years. Very little "prep" for new responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right, professional action. Do no wait until you "get caught".

    I worked at Triton College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty good working environment. Fast paced, and if you like helping people you will get to do that a lot. I learned a lot about the higher learning industry that helped me to navigate through mine, and help other students with theirs. That experience I greatly appreciate, especially because it will help me when it's time for my son to go to college. My coworker were great. I also lived the relationships I made with employees from other departments. It helped to get the job done.

    Cons

    Low pay. Also depending on the manager they micromanage, and aren't very flexible when it comes to your class schedule unless you're a student worker. That is insane to me with this being a higher learning institution. You would think that they would promote education for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with school schedules, and stop trying to make part time employees work full time hours. Just hire a full timer.

    I have been working at Triton College part-time

    Pros

    Great students
    Some cool co workers
    Great food

    Cons

    No benefits
    Low Pay
    No room for growth

    Take care of your workers. Politics in the workplace truly ruin positive growth

    Pros

    The people are nice and the students are wonderful.

    Cons

    Not paid what we are worth - no benefits, no contracts. Capped hours.

    Advice to Management

    Hire within. Quality over quantity.


  9. "Former Employee"

    I worked at Triton College full-time

    Pros

    Very casual community college, full-time staff can take classes on campus for free. The part-time staff are allowed one class per semester. You can complete a bachelor's degree program on campus through 1 of 5 universities on campus, tuition reimbursement based on job classification.

    Cons

    Individuals are often hand-selected for positions, therefore limiting career growth for those who qualify.

    Advice to Management

    Bring new ideas to the table, learn how to delegate work, communicate your daily goals, have confidence in the people you hire, commitment to your policies, learn how to inspire your staff, explore problem solving and team building skills.
